Do you ever say to yourself, “I wish I had some help in my business, but I just cannot afford to hire someone?” or “My friend just hired an assistant, I wish I could find the funds to hire one too.”  Money these days is a sensitive issue for everyone around.  As business owners we tend to cut corners in the administration areas and don’t hire the support  “staff” to get the job done.  It is easy to say “I can just cover the follow-up” or “I will enter these new contacts in my database” – the “I can do” and “I will do” statements tend to build up and our “to do” list grows out of control.  Are you really saving money by doing it all yourself?  Are you able to put the proper amount of time and focus ON YOUR business?  Are you able to keep up with follow-trough, follow-up and customer/client relationships?  When you sit back and think about it, it just may be costing you more in the long run by not having that support staff.  Hiring a Virtual Assistant can help free you up to focus on building and growing!  There are several types of Virtual Assistants out there – you can find VA’s that specialize in office work, bookkeeping, webmasters, blogging and so much more!  Look into it!
